ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- A Verizon Wireless call center in Albuquerque will shut down as the telecommunications provider plans to move to a home-based agent operation, according to a company spokesperson.
Verizon spokeswoman Jenny Weaver said Verizon will complete its transition in 2019.
Verizon does not intend to lay off its employees. Those who wish to work in a brick-and-mortar center as opposed to working from home will be offered a transfer, Weaver said.
Albuquerque's call center is located at 7000 Central Avenue. According to Albuquerque Business First, about 1,000 employees work at that facility.
